Series: Schiffer Book for Collectors. Hardcover: 272 pages. Pinball Memories by Marco Rossignoli is a big, colorful impressive tome at first, and probably appreciated by pinball aficionados, and while it does try at times to be reference-like, it fails on that front due mainly to gross omissions of necessary information. First off, this book has spectacular photography, and it's obvious Rossignoli's real talent is photography and not writing.

  • Another pinball book that misses the mark, not completely, but it should have been a lot better. There is no real rhyme or reason as to why the author selected the machines he featured, the main criteria seemed to be that they were accessible to him. There are way too many C list (and worse) pins included in this book--too many pages of the book devoted to pins that are just not that memorable. You'll read more about pins you would never think of playing (or buying) than you will pins considered top-tier. I do like his format of discussing the game, then walking you through how the pin plays. However, after reading through a few pins that even the author considered average at best, I lost interest and found myself paging through the book looking for games that would make most top 100 (or even 200 or 300) lists. A lot of the photography is very nice, some is just filler (including the last 49 pages of the book of miscellaneous photos). If you are really into pinball, have several of the profiled games in your collection or are a wood rail nut, you most likely will enjoy this book. If you can get it at a reasonable price, it is probably worth having.

  • This book is fantastic. It's loaded with colored pictures, great history behind the machines, detailed descriptions of the machines, and a must for any pinball enthusiast. Love it!

  • This book was purchased as a gift. Receiver was exceptionally pleased with the offerings within. The book has tons of information very useful to the pinball collector.

  • Informative text and glossy color photos make this another winner by Marco

  • If you're a hardcore pinball collector, then you already know everything that will be shown on these books, but in any case it's great to have them around, and make them available to the guests.

  • My husband loves this!!

  • This book on Pinball machines is third I have now. And it is very pleasant, like new ( even it was used ), and full of colour photos plus full of informations.

    I'm very happy.

  • Pinball Memories by Marco Rossignoli is a big, colorful impressive tome at first, and probably appreciated by pinball aficionados, and while it does try at times to be reference-like, it fails on that front due mainly to gross omissions of necessary information.

    First off, this book has spectacular photography, and it's obvious Rossignoli's real talent is photography and not writing. The book focuses on a seemingly arbitrary selection of classic pinball games, most likely having to do with what the author had access to rather than what was necessarily historically or technologically significant. There are gaping holes in the time period the book covers where major machines and technology are noticeably absent. But what machines are covered have plenty of great photographs. Unfortunately much of the writing that accompanies the photos is less than stellar. In many areas it seems the author is working from a chrononlogical list of pinball machines and describes each machine by listing the machines that came before and after, or were similar, so there's name-dropping galore throughout the book, but no place where these other machines can be found. This is frustrating, as the index lists hundreds of names of pinball machines, most of which when you look them up, you come to a page on another machine with some note that it was designed by the same guy who did X, Y and Z. Not terribly informative.

    The price guide portion also is not very useful. Since the author lists a very small sampling of pinball machines, there are gaping holes in any price basis. Plus the prices are simply not accurate. The book appears to be at least five years old and I'm not sure even five years ago, the machines could have been bought for what he claims in some circumstances, and since he's from Italy and lives in Australia now, it's hard to tell what market he's talking about.

    Then there are the personal anecdotes strewn throughout the book. They are really interesting if you want to know details about the author, such as whether he's a fan of Guns and Roses or what he was thinking when he saw a particular machine, but I kept yearning for more substantive information than what appears to mainly be frivolous personal anecdotes, paraphrased flyer information, and name dropping cross references.

    However, I can't find any fault with the photography. It's top notch.
